Tom Johnson (b. 1939) — Hexagons (2005) for organ

American composer, author, and theorist Tom Johnson (b. 1939) was born in Greeley, Colorado, educated at Yale University, and also studied privately with Morton Feldman. After a period of years in New York City (where he served as music critic for “The Village Voice” during the important early years of American minimalism), he settled in 1983 in Paris. Johnson’s work and musical interests fall primarily under the conceptual umbrella of minimalist music. However, Johnson’s music is distinguished by its construction from mathematical and logical processes and formulas pursued thoroughly. Among his best-known large works are “The Four Note Opera” (1972), Riemannopera (1988), and the large-scale “Bonhoeffer Oratorium” (1996), based on the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
